Their friendship turns into a friendship with benefits, but with Jamie's emotionally damaged past and Dylan's history of being emotionally unavailable, they have to try to not fall for each other the way Hollywood romantic comedies dictate. Jenna Elfman who I did not realize was still acting does a little better in a warm and significantly low-key role as Dylan's sister Annie. When he takes the job and makes the move, they quickly become friends. Even the laughs suffer, landing less with a snicker and more with a groan. The film is genuinely hilarious when it wants to be however, and this does save it from being a total waste. While sketch comedy has proved to be one of his strong suits, Timberlake seems to have a lot of trouble carrying the film.
You are watching Friends with Benefits movie at putlocker com. Woody Harrelsson, for example, can be a really funny guy, but he's not given the material or the screen time, to make his appearance worthwhile. I think the film could have only benefited from including more of him. It tries so hard initially to be the anti- romantic comedy, and then just ends up falling into the same predictable elements that every other film in the genre has already done countless times before. We know he has the chops to command the screen and be absolutely magnetic we have David Fincher and The Social Network to thank for that , but here he seems to be struggling with every other scene. He lands most of his jokes well, does decently with the dramatic bits and has plenty of chemistry with Kunis, but he lacks the spark I think most people will expect him to have in this role.
There are a few hints to suggest that a longer movie was intended but the Studio may have forced a cut down. I found him to be a fresh breath in this movie. In addition to an ending that feels rushed, all the supporting characters in the story seem futile, and underwritten. It almost feels like they wanted to desperately feel different, and then decided to just go the safer route as opposed to sticking with its offbeat early tactics. It doesn't end up being a bad Rom-com, but I've seen better.

I was really enjoying the film significantly more than I imagined, but suddenly felt bored and totally thrown off by the drastic tonal shift.
If you wish to appreciate a good spin on an old concept with stellar humor and humanity, it is worth the watch. But the film actually ended up surprising me. Timberlake and Kunis have a lot of chemistry on camera. This movie was all things cliche and predictable. Even though you know what is coming, the honesty with life's little quirks and human behavior was incredibly well done.
If you want something original and never done before, this is the wrong movie to watch. The complexity of Timberlake's character is slowly revealed through the show as opposed to being revealed in the first 3 minutes like most other movies. Woody Harrelson was the best addition to support this younger cast. But the good times cannot stay uncomplicated for long. Friends with Benefits 2011 English Subtitles Jamie Rellis Mila Kunis is a New York City head-hunter trying to sign Los Angeles-based art director Dylan Harper Justin Timberlake for her client. He would have been better suited in the film as a key supporting player, as opposed to the lead. Runtime: 1 h 49 min Rated: R Released: 22 Jul 2011 Director: Will Gluck Writer: Keith Merryman, David A.
. Well, the first half at least. Down to earth, but an air of success and confidence, hidden in all the girly dreams and fairy-tales. And is it inevitable that life imitates art? Even at the script's weakest moments, she grins and pushes forward, never once appearing to be struggling as much as Timberlake does. Patricia Clarkson and Richard Jenkins both deliver good performances, but sadly feel like they are just plagiarizing from characters they have played better in the past.
But it is Woody Harrelson who steals the entire show as gay sports writer Tommy. It made the film feel hilarious, but also made it feel like it was attempting to do something different at the same time. Both Timberlake and Kunis are likable and really funny. Gluck is not able to achieve the same level of breakthrough that he got from Emma Stone in Easy A from Kunis, but she manages to carry the film almost single handedly. What I like about them both is that they bring enthusiasm to whatever they do, and this film is no exception. He makes it his own, and is almost too good in the role.
In the end, Friends with Benefits is both surprisingly well done and unsurprisingly ordinary. The dialogue and scenario fit his charm quite well. The two had great chemistry through out the movie. Around the halfway point, the film starts to feel a little boring. The film has it's ups, it has it's downs. I found Mila Kunis to be quite funny, and she pulled off that cute, charming, awkwardly damaged woman, perfectly.
He plays the character ridiculously over-the-top, but never feels like he is encroaching on any stereotypes. Jamie Rellis and Dylan Harper, on opposite coasts, break up with their lovers: each separately vows to stay out of emotional entanglements. Rather surprisingly, the first half of Friends with Benefits is a ridiculously raunchy sex comedy that is sweeter than it is crude. On Putlocker you can watch Friends with Benefits online with subtitles or in original. The main problem to me is that when it starts, the film is being played as satire and when it ends, it's being played straight.
In more than one instance, Timberlake looks legitimately shocked at some of the things Harrelson says and gets away with. They become good friends, and after a discussion about their relationship failures, decide to start having sex without the relationship schmaltz hence the titular phrase. Actually for a while, the movie is on fire. She was chic, yet easy to relate too. To my surprise it was much more. He comes off as just okay, and more amateur than anything else.
